The Story Behind the Art
My Painting “Tradicion” was inspired by the rich cultural colors of Latin tradition and a beautiful young woman named Yesenia.
Yesenia is an accomplished model and also a very talented traditional Mexican Folklorico dancer who has won international competitions.
It was a thrill for me to have Yesenia and her family attend my artist reception and to have experienced the positive response of her entire family to the painting. They wanted to know what my inspiration was in choosing this particular pose for the painting. I told them I wanted to depict the proud and strong confidence of Yesenia’s demeanor along with the elegant way she holds herself.
I went on to explain that it is very natural for me to think and feel this way when depicting women in my paintings because I have come to realize that the greatest blessings I have received on this earth have come from the strong, caring and confident women in my life.
After I finished my explanation, I received a warm and endearing response from the entire family. It is moments such as these that feed my soul as an artist and makes life worthwhile for me.
Having Yesenia’s wonderful family at my reception brought up emotions in me that lingered well after the night was over. It rekindled the rich cultural heritage of family support given to one another in a spirit of love that I had also experience growing up.
God has blessed me with the love of family and friends. It is what holds the most meaning for me and it is the only worldly treasure I consider precious. I walk this earth as a person who has very little to complain about and very much to be grateful for.
